Jonathan Burrows & Matteo Fargion – ‘Speaking Dance’

“We think that we dance to music. But I’ve noticed more and more that that’s not what I do, and I don’t think that’s what I see other people do. I see them hanging and falling always around the music, but never grasping hold of it. We worked a lot on this piece trying to find a way to perform it where we’re not marching in step, not like an army going ‘crunch, crunch, crunch’, but rather that the counterpoint between us is somehow in all the spaces around the marching.”
-Jonathan Burrows

  1. Adam,
    Have you checked out Burrows’ book – “a choreographers handbook”? You would LOVE it.
